I read the books. I wasn't comforted. I began to dig deeper: Learning the history of Islam, where the conflict and hatred began between Muslim, Jews and everyone else and why. What I learned wasn't confidence inspiring, I didn't like, at all, the rules by Muslims lived.
Now, I'm a Mormon. I don't drink alcoholic drinks. I don't smoke. I believe in chastity, virtue and integrity. I have remained faithful to my husband and will continue to do so throughout eternity. I believe strongly in my Father in Heaven and my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. I believe in the golden rule of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and "Love your neighbor as yourself." I am a devout Christian with a complete sense of where I came from, who I am and where I am headed.
One of the book's my uncle gave me had a terrifying chapter 6, Islam's United World Order. In essence, the chapter spoke of every non-Muslim being forced to convert or die. They intend to take over every single nation and instill Sharia Law across the world. Nope, I wasn't comforted by this at all. All it did was make me mad.
I believe strongly in America's First Amendment Rights of freedom of religion, in other words, that we are able and allowed to worship according to dictates according to our consciences, within the bounds of the law. Meaning, you can't go out and commit an honor killing in American with having your butt thrown in jail for first degree murder.
Because of my beliefs, I abhor cruel, vicious and senseless violence toward anyone and yet, Islamic law seems to be the greatest proponent of the greatest cruelty toward women, children and those they deem to be apostates or infidels.
And now we come to Nonie Darwish's best-selling book, Cruel & Unusual Punishment: The Terrifying Implications of Islamic Law.
Having been born into and raised in a Muslim family, Noni shares with her readers her first hand experiences of being forced to live under Sharia Law and inner workings and machinations of Muslim faith. She does not do so out of anger or vengeance, but merely out of a desire to warn the rest of the world of what Islam has in store for us.
When Nonie Darwish was a girl of eight, her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. A high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad.Cruel & Unusual Punishment: The Terrifying Implications of Islamic Law is a wake up call to the free world:
Yet at an early age, Darwish developed a skeptical eye about her own Muslim culture and upbringing. Why the love of violence and hatred of Jews and Christians? Why the tolerance of glaring social injustices? Why blame America and Israel for everything?
Today Darwish thrives as an American citizen, a Christian, a conservative Republican, and an advocate for Israel. To many, she is now an infidel. But she is risking her comfort and her safety to reveal the many politically incorrect truths about Muslim culture that she knows firsthand.
Nonie Darwish presents an insider's look at Sharia and examines how radical Muslim laws are destroying the Western world from within. Living under Sharia law for the first thirty years of her life,a virtual slave to Islamic law, Darwish never questioned or challenged her rights--or dared to even think about the validity of Sharia laws. She didn't try to examine what Sharia was, how it came about or why she followed it. "This is Allah's law," she was told, and she knew what awaited those who questioned Allah's law.Sharia Law is about the most evil form of government which exists on the face of the earth. It surpasses all communist dictators and despots and seats itself squarely in the number one of spot of further the work of Satan.
But she doesn't believe the lies anymore, and now she wants to share her experiences with the Western world. Cruel and Usual Punishment is an insider's look at how Muslims sacrifice their basic human rights to obey the archaic and brutal laws handed down to their prophet centuries ago.
Heed this warning: Sharia Law is attempting to infiltrate Western culture and destroy democracy.
This book, is by far, the best book I have read. Nonie Darwish goes into Mohammed's history, and that was one seriously whacked out man, as well as every aspect of Sharia Law and how it came to fruition. She explains the history of Islam, and how the laws were established for the benefit of a few wealthy men and to the detriment of all women and the poor.
Here are some of the things I learned from Nonie:
1. "Even those [Muslims] who live in Western democracies must be careful not to say a word that might make them appear as apostates. For them, facts must not stand in the way." Nonie Darwish
2. Mohammed was cast from his town, Medina, and he sought refuge with a Jewish tribe. They took care of him and kept him safe, allowing him to live amongst them safely. During that time he manufactured the Koran and made up its origins. He eventually traveled back to Medina. When he was not accepted as a prophet, he gathered his armies and attacked Medina. Killing, raping and pillaging until they accepted him as a prophet of his fabricated Allah and the Koran as a book of scripture. He then headed back to the Jewish tribe, who had kept him safe, and demanded they turn their backs on Jehovah, accept Allah and himself as Allah's chosen prophet. They refused. He beheaded the almost 800 men and took the women and children into sexual slavery and slavery. He then issued an fatwa, ordering the eradication of all Jews from the face of the earth. Then he made sure it would happen by insisting the resurrection would not occur until every last Jew was dead.
So while they are those who believe the conflict between Jews and Muslims began with Isaac and Ishmael, I believe it began when they rejected him, and rightfully so. It is nothing but rage and spite which drove that fatwa and continues to drive it today.
3. Interesting, the 8 imams who wrote sharia law all met horrible ends. Sounds about the right end to men who authored such evil. The things you can learn are truly amazing when you read what those who had to live under sharia law are willing to share.
4. "If you choose to live here in America...you have the responsibility to deliver the message of Islam...Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominate...the Koran should be the highest authority in America, and... Islam the only accepted religion on earth." Omar Ahmad
My response to this: Oh hell no, not in my country. Judeo-Christian we began, and Judeo-Christian we shall remain.
I invite every single American to purchase Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Implications of Islamic Law. It is a must buy for everyone who believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which includes the God-given right to worship according to the dictates of your own conscience. Once reading this book you will come to understand the Muslim mind better and why they do what they do. Satan is the author of Sharia Law, for no other could have dream up such evil perpetrated on their fellowman.
Nonie Darwish has carefully laid out how America can stop and drive out Sharia Law from our shores. She has done a fantastic job and I give her a serious 5 stars for this book. And she is right to warn us.
Barack Obama has appointed an Egyptian woman, Dalia Mogahed, to be a proponent of Sharia Law in America. Our outrage must race to the heavens as we demand this appointment be eradicated and a full and complete return to the U.S. Constitution as the rule of law. Sharia Law must NEVER be accepted in America. Remember what you read above, this must never be allowed in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
I thank Nonie Darwish, who now has a target on her forehead waiting for some Muslim to fulfill their duty to Sharia Law, for being courageous enough to share with America the true story of living under Sharia Law and Islam's intentions for the world, especially America.
I call on all law enforcement agencies across America to arrest all those in America practicing any aspects of Sharia law which violate U.S. law, which is everything. I demand the arrest and deportation of all those wishing the enforcement of Sharia Law in America. You are to defend and protect. Do so.
